Feeling drunk or drugged in a dream

I've had a few dreams where I feel like I was drunk or was drugged, but never ingested anything in the dream. I would struggle to walk/talk/stand. I would feel very dizzy and my equilibrium is off. I did a search and a lot of people have had this feeling, but no answer. So my question is:

- Has anyone ever experienced this? If so, do tell!
- What do you think it means?

Dream 1: My first ever encounter with this feeling was strange. My friend was helping me walk into a house, and when we were approaching the door I remember seeing a cat that was cut in half but only the half with the tail was there. When we walked inside the house there were a few people in there and I remember hearing them say it was time to go, so the same friend helped me through the back door where I saw the other half of the dead cat. It was just dry, there was no puddle of blood. It was as if someone drained the cat before placing it there. No one reacted to it, and it was pretty much just left there and ignored.

Dream 2: I was walking when a lady warned me that I was possessed by an entity and that I needed to be cleansed. She invited me into her home where she was going to perform the cleansing. She mumbling some non-sense, and I was about to leave because it was too ridiculous for me. When I started heading towards the door I felt this paralyzing feeling and the "drunkiness" or "drugged"feeling started to kick in and I could no longer support my body. I felt my legs raising off the ground and my body was spinning. After a while, I was able to regain normal consciousness and the lady told me that the entity was too strong, and that I have to go to someone else, then I woke up.

Dream 3: I was a part of a group that was going to sneak into the capitol building (I have never been there in my life) and when we entered the building and started to walk around I started getting that feeling. I went into a wing that had a layout similar to a courthouse and I sat down. I must've passed out in my dream because when I "woke up" the group I came with was gone and I almost got caught, but managed to escape.

Thanks for any input

I've had this before.

It's usually in the context of a worse case scenario dream which I figure is just my minds way of preparing me for something that is giving me anxiety.

For instance, when I learned to drive a truck I had a dream where I felt drugged and the brakes took greats amount of pressure to get the damn thing to stop.

When I actually got in the real truck it was far easier and I was far more cautious due to my dream self.

More than likely your dreams just represent something on the back of your mind that your subconscious is working you through in the worst way possible.

That's just been my experience though.

Probably a hypoglycemic event happening while you were dreaming. When the body runs out of glucose at night, it starts burning ketones, if the transition is slow or insulin is high, than it can give you spins or a drunk like feeling for a while. This could extend into a dream I suppose.

I used to have a reoccurring dream about being stuck in place while a bear was coming at me. Well, it did have something to do with a furry animal. The cat would lay across my legs and was probably cutting circulation a little causing my feet to ache a little. I cannot sleep with a tucked in sheet to this day nor will I allow an animal to be on my legs, they learn very fast not to lay there.

In a reoccurring dream I have I am standing outside and looking at the stars soon a few start moving in different directions to the stationary ones and I realize they are not stars at all they are UFO's. Then I get dizzy and real stars start spinning...

Yes, I have had a dream like that - quite recently. I was in a mansion or even grander residence with very high ceilings & ornate Victorian architecture and furnishings. The fireplaces were large the kind that have carved panels that reach the ceiling and somehow the place was very familiar or mine. There are other people there in a room with rows of chairs set up for a meeting or something.

I'm walking around but sort of shuffling and really dizzy like I'm very very drunk. I sort of feel like I'm not exactly the owner of that body but looking out through the eyes and I'm getting dizzier and losing control of my motor functions. Suddenly I lose all balance and topple and my view is like I'm lying on my side and wanting to get up but I have no control of any muscles at all. I'm wanting someone to help me up but I can't form words with my mouth either and then everything goes dark and I wake up.

It was pretty scary because I've never been THAT drunk in real life. It was very odd, but then again almost none of my dreams are ever normal.

I've had dreams like that.

My parents were driving me to a house, and when we entered the house, black clouds started attacking me.
I began to feel dizzier and weaker by the second but i told myself to stay strong and eventually the black clouds went away.

I also have a lot of dreams were I completely lost my balance that I even can't get up. Like i'm drunk of intoxicated but a lot more worse. Sometimes I can't get out my bed IN my dream.

Honestly I don't know what it means. I've had a lot of these dreams but I never seem to have an explanation for it happening.

This happens to me all the time. I will not be able to do something like walk from point A to B, open a door, or speak coherently in these kind of dreams.

I do not know what to make of it. It is a weird and I do not like feeling that way. Occasional I will have a dream where I am in complete control or at the very least have 'super' powers.

Probably a minor form of sleep paralysis ?

I get sleep paralysis, and I also experience this drunkeness or stumbling feeling in dreams, it could mean two things, one that my spirit is not balanced to journey where I see fit in the dream and two, that I am trying to control the dream too much and my dream "sight" is slowly fading out of the dream, I say that because most of the time if not all (I cant remember every instance) I usually crash into the ground if Im drunkenly flying or if I stumble into the ground or a wall.
